History section[edit]

This really needs help. The history of Native Alaskans goes back just a wee bit further than 1912. A "wee bit" being several thousand years.

Have to agree with that sentiment. There are two sentences dealing with contact with the Russians, and it makes it sound as though they established a mutually beneficial trading partnership, as opposed to a one-sided oppressive colonization that resulted in the deaths of untold thousands of natives and the rampant exploitation of their resources.

Why Alaska_Natives, not Alaskan_Natives[edit]

Why is the title Alaska_Natives, and not Alaskan_Natives? --SmokeyJoe (talk) 00:18, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

For whatever reason, that's just what they are called. I think it may actually be an official BIA designation, and (pardon my OR) I remember it being one of the standard options on the forms when I worked for the census as well. I have also heard and seen "Native Alaskans" but I think "Alaska natives" is actually more clearly referring to the ethnic group and not just persons of any ethnicity who happen to have been born and raised in Alaska.
